romney would like to do today, passed a tax cut for the wealthiest that led to the lowest pace of job creation since world war ii, stripped back oversight from wall street a financial house of cards that collapsed in 2008. so president clinton made clear this isn't some sort of economic theory, we've tried these policies before and you saw where we ended up. let's pursue those that work. >> ben in terms of the strategy, we were talking about the fact that mitt romney has been trotting out i won't call it stakes, maybe dried pieces of chicken in terms of policy specifics, the $17,000 bucket, et cetera, is there concern that these are enough of a distraction to turn the dynamics of the debate away from a more aggressive posture that the president might take vis-a-vis mitt romney's obfuscation. >> the american people will be tuning in for specifics tonight. they know mitt romney can ably attack the president. he's done that the past year and a half. i don't think they're going to score punches about how many zingers or punches he lands. they'll look for an explanation. how do you pay for
ann romney's job but such a simplistic strategy with women and then look at as ron brown stein reports a micro targeted strategy to speak to women on issues not just the 47% stuff but the reproductive stuff, speaks to women's paychecks, speaks to their pocketbooks. >> the thing we talk about, months and months ago that the republicans did not understa in terms of this language ability the war on women for women it's not just about equality and rights and reproductive health it is an economic issue. these women in that poll on the pill, they know how much they pay. they know how much they pay for that is money not going to something for their kids and most working moms, my single working mom this way, would give up something for herself before she would give up something for me to make sure i had what i needed. for those women this is a very, you know, very serious issue and again, the fact that there's been such a lack of respect for women and i think also, in this 47% comment, i mean, you know, for people of color a lot of the language is very disrespectful for working people, a lot o
that romney is going to get the job without saying anything? you think romney can get the job without saying anything? >> dana: where do you get he hasn't said anything? >> bob: tell me what he said about medicare. >> dana: i am not a spokesperson for romney come pain. i read the 59-point plan which is darned detail you made fun of before. >> bob: it's laughable. >> dana: you can is not say he doesn't have a plan. it sounds so hollow. >> bob: what do you say it's not true? you have to lay it out. >> kimberly: you are making statements that are inaccurate. you may it or disapprove, your right, but the american people should decide whether or not they think he can do a better job. >> bob: you know something i don't know. tell me what is the plan? >> eric: who cares -- >> kimberly: why do i care about the liberals? why are you caring about the liberals? >> bob: you said he has a plan. i don't know it. >> kimberly: he doesn't worry about the specific loopholes. he has an overall picture, that does not increase taxes on the middle class. to encourage people to invest in the economy. >> eric: can
romney's job number one tonight? >> well, if he was out here, shepard, his job number one would be to stand upright in the wind. since he he is going to be inside, i think his job is to go large about the issues and about the choice before the american people in this election. you know, vice president biden was right. they the middle class has been buried and debt and regulation and taxes. we need to free them up and empower them. i think governor romney is going to present the choice and is he going to say what he would do about it. >> a lot of republicans, sir have said that governor romney, 47% remark is one that needs a button on it. it's one that needs an explanation and a turning point for him to get past it. how might he do that tonight? >> well, again, i think the answer is to go large and let the american people see his heart, his concern for what's happening to the middle class. i mean, you know, half the kids getting out of school can't get a job. and this has been going on for years. and then to talk about what he wants to do about it. you know, i just think he needs
struggling to find a job? >> reporter: romney said at a recent stop it is not about winning. >> mitt romney is the underdog and he will be ready on the issues which is what this is about. >> they say the debate will pressure the challenger. >> i think the debate will be interesting and they will be held to account for as far -- for more as far as the facts and details. >> reporter: both know the questions an answers can be costly. >> quite a few have lost an election with a debate. >> meaning what happens tonight could decide what happened. >> live in denver, i am sandra back to you. >> our coverage starts at 6:00 p.m. time now 4:46, they created a protest to ban sitting on sidewalks in the city's commercial areas. opponents shared ice cream and a kiss in front of city hall and they say it was a recreation of president barack obama and michelle obama's first date of eating ice cream on the sidewalk. it will unfairly tar get the homeless. a san francisco city leader is working to get people covered up and they are receiving numerous complaints about the naked people who frequented the public
think mitt romney doesn't care about the 47% or just have a different approach when it comes to jobs in the economy? >> i think that he can't relate. i think that he doesn't care because he spoke from his heart when he didn't know that the cameras were rolling. when he was on that garbage truck for a couple of hour, he knew the cameras were rolling and it's one thing to work on a garbage truck for a couple of hours for a show basically. it's another thing to do it every day, eight, ten hours a day for 20 years. >> joan raymond, it's good of you to come on the program, especially to get up early for us. let me bring back governor rendell and chip. listening to her and a lot of people like her, is that what mitt romney has to think about tonight when he's saying here's what i really meant? >> i think he does. i think the biggest challenge mitt romney's got to do is connect with those folks who think he's just a rich guy who doesn't care and i think those who know mitt romney the best, he's a compassionate guy who's done a lot for not only his community, country, state and church, givin
and this is shared by a lot of republicans, that anytime mitt romney spins isn't on the economy and jobs, tonight's debate as much he can, he's going to be time wasted for him. in the larger picture because that's the wedge that he can win. >> dan rather, always great to have you here. thank you so much. major garrett, i don't know about you, i cannot wait. cannot wait. thank you. >> i can't wait. >> thank you. >>> just terrible news out of syria where there was a horrific scene this morning. at least 33 people were killed. dozens maybe trapped in the rubble after a wave of suicide bombings in the main square in aleppo. three were car bombs. at least one building was levelled. another blast went off outside the chamber of commerce nearby. the syrian government blames the rebels, but activists say syrian troops planted those bombs.

really well at all. >> reporter: but governor romney still talks up job training. he backs personal reemployment accounts that workers can use to find training and job counseling. and he wants states to take the lead, not the federal government. there are now 47 different federal training programs, and romney calls that duplication a waste. >> all that money, all that overhead-- what i want to do is take those dollars and bundle it up, send it back to nevada and say, "you train your people for the jobs the people of nevada need and want." >> reporter: most of those 47 programs are very small and they're aimed at groups like veterans and the poor. governor romney would replace them with a fixed grant of money to each state. that would give states more flexibility. but that funding would come with some risk. >> in the end, it often becomes an excuse just for cutting resources, and we've already cut resources so dramatically in this area. the cuts are as steep as 90% compared to 30 years ago when these programs peaked. >> reporter: when congress gets back to budget talks next year, the
unemployment are not good for anyone in elected office and are are not good for anyone looking for a job either. >> susie: you know, tonight obviously in the debate president obama and governor romney will be talking about the job market do. you expect them to give any kind of plan to jolt the labor market and to get that unemployment rate down drastically? >> i think both candidates are likely to be somewhat vague in their discussion of proposals to great jobs. if i were asking the question, i think the one that i with like to hear answered most would be, what are you going to do about the approaching fiscal cliff if we go over the fiscal cliff, if we plunge over the highest bluff along the fiscal cliff, it's very likely the economy will fall into recession and the unemployment rate instead of being 8 at the end of next year will be above 9. so the first thing that any elected official needs to do in 2013 is prevent job losses by doing something about the fiscal cliff. >> susie: are you predicting a recession? >> no, we're not. we do think that in a crisis environment at the 11th hour, some so
the president will do a better job in the debates. only 32% say mitt romney will do a better job. that low number may be mitt romney's big opportunity though. let's discuss with our chief political analyst gloria borger. are these debates, gloria, always harder for incumbents? >> i think it is. you look at the expectation game. people understand that president obama is a great speaker, they've seen him do other debates in the past. and they kind of remember them and think he's the sitting president, he'll do a better job. so he's got expectations running against him. then the other thing for the challenger is remember, wolf, this is really the first time that mitt romney and barack obama will be at the same level. so just by showing up to a certain degree mitt romney gets elevated standing on the same stage with the president. and here's another thing about the president, he has to defend his record without seeming to be defensive about it. and that's, you know, that's not an easy thing to accomplish. so he's got a big job tonight. >> mitt romney's got a huge job as well. what do you expec

. president's job rating. romney's favorability rating that number is still under water he has problems and the question of which candidate is better equipped to manage the economy. remember the unemployment rate is 5.9% in virginia. romney's favorable in florida but under in virginia and ohio. when it comes to who is better able to manage the economy a question on which romney has staked his candidacy romney has a margin of error lead in florida and virginia. the president leads on that question in ohio. with iowa, new hampshire and ohio headed to the obama column that puts the president at 265 and that means romney has to run the table on the remaining states to get to 270. if the debate doesn't move romney's numbers in ohio he may face the same decision al gore faced in 2000 whether to take the pr hit. all of this explains why tonight's debate is so crucial. >> it is spectacular and i have never seen it before. >> a 726 foot monument to government infrastructure. in denver romney's break time was lunch to chipotle. the candidates off the trail on tuesday and the two men picked up the

? >> for governor romney, he's got two jobs: one is to say why the president has failed and the second is to sell himself. to do that job, he has to be aggressive, kind of in the president's face. for the second job he has to offer something people find attractive so the challenge for him is getting the mix right. the challenge for the president is staying on script, talking about howshe's been working for the middle-class and not getting knocked off by governor romney who he doesn't have a great deal of personal regard for. so he has to not look defensive. >> pelley: john, thank you very much. we'll be back later tonight with cbs news live coverage of the debate. that's 9:00 eastern time and 6:00 in the west. today secretary of state hillary clinton promised a full and open investigation into the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, three weeks ago. four americans, you'll recall, were killed, including ambassador chris stevens. there are a lot of questions about what happened. margaret brennan has been following this story and she's at the start tonight. margaret? >> reporter:

presidential nominee paul ryan said a romney administration would help more americans find jobs. >> we have a jobs crisis in america. wouldn't it be nice to have a job creator in the white house? ( applause ) we can't afford four more years. we need a real recovery. take a look at just jobs. we lost 582,000 manufacturing jobs since the president took office. he's offering a new tax increase on our job creators that will cost us 700,000 jobs. we're offering really forms. >> ifill: which candidate has the better plan to get the economy back on track? that's the key question in battleground states like north carolina, which only months ago seemed out of reach for the democrats this year. but it's back in play again. jeffrey brown traveled there to discover why. >> lead the way. brown: 26-year-old dewayne owens who served in the marines and is now a professional mixeded marshal artist usually takes on tougher opponents than your correspondent. >> i see. brown: but this weekend on a break from training at the gym in durham, he offered a few pointers >> when i kick i'm thinking about kicking thro

romney doesn't care about that. >> my job is not to worry about those people. >> romney's campaign responded by saying, he is right. no, actually a spokesman replied, "it is not surprising a liberal special interest group is trying to distract from president obama's failed agenda with dishonest, political attacks." i think that was actually written for just about every response. you send that thing out. meanwhile, is the prospect of obama winning a second term giving kitten nightmares? i don't see that kitten hugging any garbage men. what kind of kitten is that? it is a monster kitten. jedediah, try to control yourself. when you played the ad with the garbage man, you were nodding your head in agreement. that surprised me. >> who hugs their garbage man? other than you, of course. and it is not just a garbage man. they have follow-up video with a local fireman and then another lady who picks up the trash in the neighborhood. if they were going to pull the class warfare nonsense they should have been more creative than this. no one hands garbage to their -- gatorade to their garbage
